Review: Scramble On Yavin - TLC - Battle Packs

Posted by Paul | May 28, 2009 at 08:00 AM EDT |

    We have another installment of Research Droids Reviews for you! Today we shift gears a bit and look at the Scramble On Yavin Battle Packs set as a whole. One of the neatest things to come from Hasbro in years, we fear that future sets may not equal the magnitude of this one. Based on a scene from A New Hope, this multipack from The Legacy Collection is certainly not to be passed up. Click the Research Droids banner for our Research Droids Reviews archive index or the thumbnail for the direct review on the Scramble On Yavin Battle Packs set below!

TRU Spring Cleaning? Exclusives And More Marked Down!

Posted by Paul | May 27, 2009 at 05:36 PM EDT |

    TRU is beginning to take stock of their inventory and clearance out some Star Wars stuff. We just found the Ultimate Quarter Scale Darth Maul for $59.98 (which we hope doesn't foretell the future of this line since we barely only saw two at retail thus far), the Disturbance At Lars Homestead set has been marked down to $39.98 and don't forget about the Rogue Squadron B-wing Fighter which has been down to $29.98 for a while now. We cannot believe these are 'clearance' prices. But if you want these items, they might be disappearing soon since everyone is looking to save as much he can with toys in The Legacy Collection.

 

Review: Luke Skywalker - TLC - BD 38

Posted by Paul | May 27, 2009 at 07:41 AM EDT |

    Welcome to another Research Droids Reviews archive entry!

First Look! Han Solo In Carbonite 12" Figure Environment!

Posted by Paul | May 26, 2009 at 06:39 PM EDT |

    The second 12" Figure Environment has been released from Sideshow Collectibles in the form of Han Solo In Carbonite. This expensive collectible is very nice, but we have determined that the $199.99 sticker is overpriced. And we would probably still have to say it was too expensive at $149.99. But - with all that being said - click through and check out some detailed images of this beautifully executed collectible.

Star Wars Action News - Episode 196

Posted by Bryan | May 26, 2009 at 05:43 PM EDT |

    Yesterday, May 25th, was a special day for two reasons. First it was Memorial Day in the United States, a day when we remember those who died protecting our country in war. Second, it was the 32nd anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope being released in theaters.

TARGET Jabba's Rancor - Variation Already!!!

Posted by Paul | May 25, 2009 at 04:59 PM EDT |

    We know that the Jabba's Rancor With Luke Skywalker TARGET exclusive is NOT even officially out yet, but we already have a variation to report. Please don't shoot the messengers - we are growing weary of this just as much as you are! We have found some with a dull white wash while others have a shiny dark brown gloss finish. We are inclined to think that the "shiny" one is the corrected version, only because it "looks better" than the "aged" look of the white wash sample. We have provided pictures of both for you to compare. Click through for the madness!

U-3PO Build A Droid Variation Visually Confirmed!

Posted by Paul | May 16, 2009 at 01:37 PM EDT |

    If you're a Star Wars collector, you know that errors, repacks, and variations are an inevitable aspect of the hobby! And you think with a brand new set of figures just released, that we might get a respite from the variation frenzy. But no, we have found the Build A Droid U-3PO in two tones of silver. One has a bright platinum tone, while the other has a rosy or pinkish wash. We are NOT making this up folks, click through for the visual confirmation! If you're a creative collector, you could 'pretend' one is E-3PO!

    You see that Star Trek movie yet? Despite being a Star Wars podcast and having a Star Wars web site, it seems that Star TREK is the sci-fi franchise in the spotlight especially this past weekend with the new movie out. Remarks have been made such as "This is the Star Trek movie made for Star Wars fans" and Star Wars fans who follow swactionnews on Twitter have said "The new Star Trek is better than the entire prequel trilogy". With such statements being made, it's impossible for this to not have an impact on Star Wars collecting, and as such we discuss the state of the two sci-fi franchises and how Star Wars collectors may be impacted on this week's Star Wars Action News.
